Rafael Mantesso makes whimsical doodles with his Bull Terrier, Jimmy Choo, that brought a big smile to my face! The Brazilian illustrator draws something funny and cute and then stages Jimmy Choo against his apartment’s white walls to complete the image.
“On my thirtieth birthday, my wife left me. She took her cookware, furniture, photos, her decorations. She left me alone in an empty all-white apartment. The only thing she didn’t take was my bull terrier, whom she’d named after her favorite shoe designer: Jimmy Choo. With only Jimmy for company, I found inspiration in my blank walls and my best friend and started snapping photos of Jimmy Choo as he trotted and cavorted around the house in glee. When Jimmy collapsed in happy exhaustion next to the white wall, I grabbed a marker and drew a new world around his ginger-eared pup. Suddenly, I felt his long-dormant inspiration for drawing, for art, for life—returning.”
These adorable compositions are so charming and it’s easy to see how much he loves his dog.
